Lochiel parkrun – Event number 3 – 19th September 2015

The numbers were down a little for event number 3, it's not really surprising on the City-Bay weekend. It was still a fantastic turn out of 92 and we all had a great morning anyway.

We had visitors from Mount Gambier and the Gold Coast, it was great to welcome them to the event. Even more exciting, I think, was that we introduced parkrun to 10 brand new people.

I hope everyone who participated in the City-Bay had great run. It was certainly a beautiful day for it.

Thank you to our volunteers, without you, we couldn't put the event on.
